I make a beeline for the Belgian Waffles whenever I go out for Sunday Brunch. It’s always such a special treat to indulge in those fluffy, crispy waffles.
I never realized I could easily duplicate my favorite breakfast treat in my own kitchen. This Belgian Waffle Recipe is not only easy to make it makes the Best Belgian Waffles.
What’s the difference between Regular Waffles and Belgian Waffles?
There are two things that distinguish a Belgian Waffle from a Regular Waffle.
- The texture: Belgian Waffles are traditionally Light and airy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Regular Waffles have a softer cake like texture. There are two ways to achieve that fluffy, crispy texture. You can make a yeast batter or fold in whipped egg whites. The egg white method is what is used in this recipe making it a quick and easy breakfast.
- Deeper Pockets: To make a true Belgian Waffle you need a Belgian Waffle Iron. This type of waffle iron form a large deeper pocket in your waffle. These large pockets create a perfect little well for your syrup or strawberry sauce to pool in.
Topping ideas for you Belgian Waffles
What’s your favorite Waffle toppings? Strawberry sauce is definitely right at the top of my favorites list. This time of year sauteed apples creep up there too. However, I usually like to keep it sweet and simple and just pour some real Maple Syrup on them. After all that’s what all those deep pockets are for….to capture all that sweet deliciousness.
Belgian Waffles aren’t just a tasty breakfast treat either. Try serving them as dessert with a big scoop of ice cream and chocolate sauce.

**These Belgian Waffles can be wrapped up in plastic wrap and frozen for up to 3 months. To reheat thaw and heat in a toaster to recapture that crispy texture.
